National Anthem of Guyana Lyrics: A.L. Luker – Music: Robert Cyril Gladstone Potter
Dear land of Guyana, of rivers and plains, Made rich by the sunshine and lush by the rains, Set gem-like and fair between mountains and sea, Your children salute you, dear land of the free.
Green land of Guyana, our heroes of yore, Both bondsmen and free, laid their bones on your shore; This soil so they hallowed, and from them are we, All sons of one mother, Guyana the free.
Great land of Guyana, diverse though our strains, We are born of their sacrifice, heirs of their pains, And ours is the glory their eyes did not see, One land of six peoples, united and free.
Dear land of Guyana, to you, will we give Our homage, our service, each day that we live; God guards you, great Mother, and make us to be More worthy our heritage – land of the free.
I pledge myself to honor always the Flag of Guyana and to be loyal to my country. To be obedient to the laws of Guyana, to love my fellow citizens, and to dedicate my energies towards the happiness and prosperity of Guyana.
